This book is a most useful selection of some of the lessdialectic writings of Reinhold Niebuhr. This collection of magazine articles, written by Niebuhr over a period of twenty-five years, reflects his thoughts in more readily comprehensible language. It will be most useful to the reader who wants to get Niebuhr's ideas, but is unwilling (or unable) to discover them in his more ""solid"" works. More particularly, this selection shows where Dr. Niebuhr stands on given social issues, and where he sees the points of contact between Christian love and the multiple ramifications of justice, indicating clearly where he believes positive decisions and actions are possible, even imperative, for the Christian. Many serious readers will be indebted to Mr. Robertson for bringing these essays together in one volume.
